I do not find samples.February 19, 2013 at 11:46 pm #39169
Must not be for all countries then.
The score sounds exactly how all of you are expecting. The Wizard’s theme is cool and gets a big performance in the main titles, the theme for the Wicked Witch is nice if familiar for Elfman.February 20, 2013 at 12:12 am #39168
So nice of Danny Elfman to quote “O Canada” in the main titles for OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL. My fandom has paid off
0:09 in the first iTunes clip — on the UK store — c’mon you lazy AmericansFebruary 20, 2013 at 2:47 am #39166
Wow, you’re right. There’s no WAY that wasn’t intentional. Is Elfman having a laugh?February 20, 2013 at 3:14 am #39167
No idea. Maybe he’s referencing RV Williams’ THE 49TH PARALLEL, which also did the same thing?February 21, 2013 at 12:22 am #39164
Different samples.February 22, 2013 at 4:45 pm #39163
NR: Beyond the incredible visual effects, story, and performances, you have music. Danny Elfman’s score fuses so perfectly with the imagery you’ve created – what was it like working with him on this project?
SR: Well, working with Danny was one of my favorite parts of the picture, working with a great composer like Danny Elfman because you work with a team of artists, creating the world, the look of it, and the cinematographer and the actors on bringing emotion to it, but really it’s only once the music goes on does it all seem like a complete thing. The music takes emotions that are in the scene and elevates them to higher levels. You think it’s one of the guys telling the story—”Oh, this is great. It’s working better.” It’s so exciting to be a part of that process. So I think, on this one, working with the composer Danny Elfman was my favorite part.February 23, 2013 at 11:46 pm #39160
The samples are really great…
But once again, no cd release is indicated, only digital…February 24, 2013 at 10:59 am #39159
What are you talking about… “no cd release”? It’s already been anounced that Intrada is releasing the CD.February 24, 2013 at 1:31 pm #39158
Oh, yes indeed. Sorry, that was because only the digital download was available for pre-order on amazon, and some other places. I forgot about this Intrada thing.February 24, 2013 at 11:39 pm #39157
That’s understandable… but I guess that, just like with the Avengers Score (also release by Intrada), Amazon will carry it but it will be the same “flat” price of $19.99, and with Intrada’s deal with Disney I guess we will at least see physical releases for any big Disney film (but be prepared to pay $19.99) – Intrada after all finially released “Up” as well as “Toy Story 3” on CD.February 27, 2013 at 11:04 pm #39156
Scoring sessions featured in this b-roll too.February 28, 2013 at 2:57 am #39154
It’s nice to see Elfman happy and motivated to work with Raimi again. It gets me even more excited to hear this score. I always believed those two made a great collaboration/duo.February 28, 2013 at 5:56 pm #39155
Raimi’s been gushing about Elfman non-stop. I just watched a press conference and Raimi starting praising him to no end on a completely unrelated topic. Maybe Elfman will score the horror movie he’s currently writing with his brother?February 28, 2013 at 8:37 pm #39153
Many elfman’s music in this video. And scoring session with Danny in the end of clip.

I’m thrilled that Elfman and Raimi ended their feud. I hope the score is awesome!March 1, 2013 at 9:25 pm #39151
A chunk of the score is now on Youtube. ‘The Preparation Montage’ is all kinds of awesome.March 2, 2013 at 8:30 am #39054
I’ve been listening to the soundtrack tonight. It’s pretty great. I love the main titles. About half-way through, it turns into a marvelous off-kilter calliope waltz that reminds me of some of the Burton MoMA music. This works really well on it’s own and I’m a bit more curious to see the film itself after listening.
The Witch’s Waltz Theme is one of the best Elfman compositions in a long while and it’s featured throughout the score.March 2, 2013 at 5:34 pm #39055
I just finished the listening, and I agree : it’s great. Not the most original score by Elfman, it’s quite what we expected from this project, but it’s really, really well done. The themes are powerful and sensitives, and as usual Elfman knows how to play with them with a lot of gift and musical intelligence.
A major score, with a great album presentation (as much as I love Hitchcock, I think the album is really to short, with cues of such a reduced lenght that it is sometimes hard to catch a musical or thematic continuity…) : a pleasant listening experience, and I think I will love it more and more at each new hearing.March 2, 2013 at 6:29 pm #39056
If you download Disney’s OZ app there’s plenty of continous Elfman score playing in the background.
The score is excellentMarch 2, 2013 at 6:44 pm #39057
It’s early days yet, but I think I like this even more than Alice. Which would make it may favourite Elfman score in I don’t know how many years.March 3, 2013 at 6:09 am #39058
Is it just me or did anyone else have the tune “Can`t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis running through your head after listening to the score?March 3, 2013 at 10:43 am #39059
I think it’s just you…
